Coverdell Fellows must be fully funded by a research, teaching or administrative fellowship. This is a standard in our college. Graduate students do not typically pay tuition in research graduate programs.
In addition, a $5,000 award + paid assistantship of $21,761 will be negotiated when the assistantship is offered to the student. (Assistantship value is the average of Penn State University stipend amount.)
